Name: William de Montfort 1
Birth: ABT 1276 in Studley, Alcester, Warwickshire, England 2
Birth: 1276 in Coughton, Warwickshire, England 1
The Phillips Family has his parents as Richard FitzSimon de Montfot, of Coughton, b. abt 1242 in Coughton, Alcester, Warwickshire, and Rode de Brandeston. This Richard, in turn, is show as a son of Simon de Montfort, earl of Leicester, who lead the revolt against Henry III and died at the battles of Evesham in Aug., 1265.
I have maintained Philip as the father. Although there is indication that Simon de Montfort and his wife, Elizabeth Plantagenent (sister of Henry III and dau of King John) had four sons, most lists do not show a son Richard. The one that does indicates that he died in his teens. There is much written about Simon's other sons (Henry who died with his father at Evesham, Guy who was captured there, and Simon who captured Kenilworth and how, along with Guy, was later in Italy]. Almaric, a younger son, was imprisoned for a long time. The Phillip Family shows William as older than Guy, which makes it more unlikely that he would not be mentioned in the reports of Eversham. It is unlikely that a son of Simon whold have lived at liberty in England after Eversham. It iseems to me more likely that William was the son of Peter and the grandson of Peter I who died with Simon at Eversham; Peter was not a leader of the rebels.
